Course Insight

The North and South Courses opened in 1957, designed by William F. Bell. The South Course was redesigned by Rees Jones. The North Course underwent a complete renovation by Tom Weiskopf in 2016.

Notable Course Insight

Measuring 570 yards, the 18th hole on the South Course is reachable in two shots, but the second shot must be well struck or it could find the small pond that fronts the green. Even laying up can be dangerous, with approach shots at risk of spinning off the green and into the water.

Charity Benefit

Champions for Youth is the core charitable program of the Century Club of San Diego, the non-profit that operates the Farmers Insurance Open, benefiting selected charities. The tournament also supports organizations that use golf to benefit the community and enhance diversity within the game, and the military through the Armed Services YMCA.
